It’s summer time time in the Northern Hemisphere, and that signifies campfires for cooking incredibly hot canine, trying to keep the mosquitoes absent, and of course, building s’mores. For our much-flung good friends, that is a fire roasted marshmallow and a square of chocolate smashed among two graham crackers. So referred to as since when you are done, you are going to want s’more. It’s an straightforward plenty of recipe that any boy or girl can tell you how to make it. But what if you are not a boy or girl? What if you really do not even have fingers, because you’re an industrial robotic? This is the challenge that [Excessive Overkill] has taken on in the movie under the crack.
Starting with a Fanuc S-420 i W industrial robot constructed in 1997, [Excessive Overkill] painstakingly taught his personal personal robotic how to make S’Mores. Hacking the microwave with pneumatic cylinders to get the door open was a awesome contact, and so are the vacuum grippers at the enterprise conclude of the S’More-bot.
We know, we mentioned you ended up meant to make them on a campfire — but who would like to chance cooking their vintage robotic arm just to soften some chocolate?
There’s a large amount of tale driving this hack, and [Excessive Overkill] explains how they acquired, transported, and three period run an out of date industrial robotic in yet another of their video clips. Of program, this is Hackaday so it’s a issue which is appear up just before in the reverse engineering of an industrial robotic that we covered some time back.
Many thanks [Phil] for the terrific idea!
